Our Choir

The Parish Choir at Christ Episcopal Church is a very dedicated and loyal group of volunteer singers, open to anyone who enjoys singing. Rehearsals are grounded not only in solid musical practice, but also in historical, spiritual and liturgical awareness. The Parish Choir is a great place to expand musical skills and increase the understanding of the role of music in the liturgy

The repertoire is diverse in style and level of difficulty, including Gregorian chant, renaissance polyphony, traditional sacred music from all periods of music history, Gospel music, spirituals, and music from Taize and by living composers. Particular emphasis is placed on unaccompanied music heard in every Sunday liturgy.

The organ is a three manual Rembrandt 370 built by the firm of Johannus in The Netherlands. The instrument features two intonations which have recently been voiced similar to Aeolian Skinner organs heard from the periods of G. Donald Harrison, and Joseph S. Whiteford.

The grand piano was built by Wurlitzer.

Both instruments enjoy a warm and vibrant acoustical environment.

An annual concert music series features both organ and piano along with other instruments and singers, many of which are of national prestige.
